The Saudi-led coalition on Friday said that it had thwarted two attacks by the Houthis, according to Saudi state TV on Twitter.
The coalition destroyed an explosive-laden boat in the southern Red Sea and an explosive drone destined for Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi-led coalition of Arab states entered the standoff between Yemen’s government and the armed Houthi political opposition forces on the side of the country's authorities in 2015, after the Houthis had made significant gains during the early days of the clashes.
In recent months, the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen, which has been engulfed in the civil war since 2014, has been a hot spot of multiple attacks reported by Riyadh as Houthi provocations involving rockets, drones and explosives.
The latest incident, in which a drone targeting Riyadh was intercepted, occurred on 4 December, according to the kingdom.
